Simonscales Mill, Cockermouth, Cumbria
Caravan Holiday Park Information
The peace, tranquility and beauty of West Lakes and fells.
The Old Mill stands in its own five-acre small-holding, in a beautiful setting on the banks of the River Cocker, and has historical roots in the Flax and Bobbin industry. It has been tastefully converted for your enjoyment, and thoughtfully adapted for wheel-chair access.
A private Patio over-looks the river teaming with wildlife: Herons, Dippers, Water-hens, the occasional Kingfisher and a host of Mallards and Goosanders. In late summer and autumn you will hear the splash of the Salmon and Trout as they make their way up-stream to spaw. Apart from the river life, bird life abounds, from tiny Wrens and Tree-creepers, colourful Chaffinches, Robins, at least four kinds of Tits, to mighty Buzzards calling as they circle over-head.
Red Squirrels can also be seen darting up trees and nibbelling on some nuts.
Simonscales offers the peace and tranquility of the countryside, yet is just a beautiful, one mile walk from the town of Cockermouth, the birth place of William Wordsworth - Lakelands' treasured Poet. Wordsworth's house is open to the public.
